Go Green Market, October 30

This Sunday 30 October, Liefgoed will be present at the Go Green Market of the Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior festival (10.00 - 17.00). This festival will take place at 29, 30 & 31 October and 3, 4, 5 November, kop Java-eiland Amsterdam. What will we bring with us for you to buy:

Excellent laptop sweaters, made from sweaters done living a life as sweater and given a second life as a warm protector of your precious laptop. We even have Ipad sweaters!

Nice paperclips, given a second change as the were saved from a horrible man who used to molest them! They've been pimped with leather leftovers from musical costumes and finished of with old buttons. So now you can use them as bookmarkers or clips for your bills or anything that needs to be hold together.

Whatelse? The Liefgoed Family Planner for 2012 full with new Liefgoed designs that bring you back to the old days. You'll receive a special bag with the Planner made from old Bali ricebags. And of course the Add & Edit notebook filled with paper saved from the bin. Want to see more? Come and visit us this Sunday. For more information check Sunday Market or Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior Festival for the full program with discussions, music, entertainment and food.

Ever heard of Aalesund, it's a town in Norway and it has an excellent shop called Farmor Ingvarda selling lovely stuff and... our Liefgoed postcards. Have a look for yourself at Farmor Ingvarda's blog. It's not very likely that we visit Norway anytime soon, but when we do, Farmor Ingvarda will certainly be on the list of things to visit. Thank you Trine for having us in your excellent shop!

Project 52 Kaartjes

We love the idea of the Project called 52 Kaartjes.
An initiative of two sisters Annemiek & Anna who send each other a handwritten card every week and post about it on their blog and twitter.

Why? Because we hardly send or receive handwritten mail anymore. And isn't that a pity! Do you remember there actually was a time that we were looking forward to the visit of the mailman? I bet he was happier too those days, now it's mainly the bills that he needs to deliver, no fun in that. 

So join in, not only you will enjoy it, but also the one receiving it plus it will bring back happiness to the mailman's life, and of course us (... we love to design more and more postcards).

This was this weeks card from Annemiek to Anna.
